It is very easy to make Shabby Chic Christmas trees. You will need patience and a bit of craft, as well as some fabric scraps, needle, and thread, scissors, and paintbrushes. To make the ornaments for Christmas tree decorations, we always start with a white tree. These are scraps of fabric that we find at fabric shops or from an old dress. This gives us a blank canvas to work with. They can also be attached to the board, which is a bonus.
After cutting our fabric scraps into the right sizes, we attach them with a few threads. Then we fasten them on using a few more threads. Just make sure you leave enough fabric length to hang on. You can make classic ornaments look vintage with some vintage lace and a bit of glitter attached to a thread. However, you will find that Shabby Chic decorations look best when you use vintage fabrics. You can give your shabby chic Christmas tree an updated look by adding crystal ornaments and beads in different colors. Although this may require some creativity, once you are comfortable with the technique you will be able to create your own unique look.
Here’s the best part! To finish your Shabby Chic Christmas tree, you can add a decorative ribbon to the base. This will hold it in place and give it a feminine look. This can be done using the traditional old-fashioned ribbon, or with some of our new ornaments. You’ll have a stunning Victorian Christmas scene.
